Richard Wood – Summit Law Group

Practice/Organization Description

I am the Accounting Manager here at Summit Law Group, but also do some of the business development via social networking.

Summit Law Group rejected the traditional law firm model and started from scratch to design a modern law firm founded on a single principle: customer service.

We formed Summit Law Group to revolutionize the way legal services are provided to law firm customers. Most law firms provide legal services in the same way that they did 25 years ago. Those firms focus on lawyers, not customers. Their practice model relies on large numbers of people billing large numbers of hours, often without regard for the value of the work to the customer.

We reject that model. We believe that the market for legal services has dramatically changed in the last decade. Our mission is to think creatively and proactively in formulating the most effective and efficient solutions to your legal needs.

AV-rated Summit Law Group achieves great results with small, efficient and creative teams. Every person at Summit Law Group is a legal professional who shares in the firm's success, and every lawyer is an equity owner of our business. As a result, everyone on your Summit team personally feels a sense of ownership, responsibility and accountability to our customers unparalleled at other firms. We strive to eliminate the inherent inefficiencies of traditional law firm practice, such as a leveraged partner/associate hierarchy, in order to focus exclusively on you, our customer.

This model has been proven over the years by our success with a broad variety of complex legal issues, success that has created loyal, enthusiastic customers. Summit Law Group is committed to building working partnerships with our customers and delivering the highest caliber work product with entrepreneurial vigor.
